Welcome to the MLB DFS Stacks article - where we’ll be looking to highlight the best hitting stacks of the day. These recommendations are categorized as “Cash Game Stacks” and “Tournament Stacks” while outlining risk/reward situations. We will add additional context with other hitting/pitching options throughout the article.

Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury/rest situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our MLB News & Headlines Feed throughout the day will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.

We will be looking at the all-day slate beginning at 1:10 ET.

CASH GAME STACKS

Chicago White Sox (vs. Baltimore - RHP Matt Harvey)

The White Sox and Orioles will be playing a double-header today. If you are on a slate that features the first game (2:10 ET), then seriously consider the White Sox bats, even though this will only be a seven-inning game. Chicago will step in against RHP Matt Harvey, who has been an absolute trainwreck lately with 18 earned runs and 24 hits allowed across 10.2 innings over his last three starts.

St. Louis (at Arizona - RHP Seth Frankoff)

The Cardinals represent the highest run-scoring projection of the evening slate, and they carry plenty of weight in the all-day slate as well. Taking on Arizona RHP Seth Frankoff is a nice spot, as the righty tosser has allowed 10 hits and seven earned runs across 8.2 innings in two starts. Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Tommy Edman, Dylan Carlson, and Tyler O’Neill make for a confident stack.

Kansas City (at Minnesota - LHP J.A. Happ)

J.A. Happ looked great for the Twins to begin the season; however, the veteran southpaw has encountered some turbulence lately. Happ has allowed 19 earned runs and 24 hits over his last three starts (13 IP). Those struggles could persist vs. Kansas City - while Whit Merrifield, Adalberto Mondesi, Salvador Perez, Hunter Dozier, and Carlos Santana are the guys to take advantage (in order of preference).

Top Plays: , Yasmani Grandal (C ), Jose Abreu (1B), Paul Goldschmidt (1B), Tim Anderson (SS), Yoan Moncada (3B), Nolan Arenado (3B), Tommy Edman (OF)

Top Value: Salvador Perez (C ), Whit Merrifield (2B), Hunter Dozier (3B), Adalberto Mondesi (SS), Dylan Carlson (OF)

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Colorado (at Pittsburgh - RHP Mitch Keller)

Colorado’s offense has been one of the worst in the league away from home. However, there’s a glimmer of hope for them today. Pittsburgh RHP Mitch Keller has been awful while allowing 14 earned runs and 21 hits across 13.1 innings over his last three starts. Keller owns a career .397 wOBA split to left-handed bats, so Charlie Blackmon, Raimel Tapia, and Ryan McMahon are Colorado hitters in a great spot to inflict some damage.

Toronto (at Cleveland - LHP Sam Hentges)

I’m not sure if the weather will cooperate with us here, as it’s supposed to be chilly with the wind blowing in at Progressive Field. Still, this matchup is tough to ignore, as Toronto has plenty of weapons to jump all over mediocre Cleveland LHP Sam Hentges. The Indians’ southpaw has coughed up nine earned runs through 6.2 innings over his last two starts, so there’s hope that the Blue Jays can get to him. Vlad Guerrero Jr., Marcus Semien, Bo Bichette, Randal Grichuk, and Teoscar Hernandez are all in play.
